Wonderful family cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This sprawling cabin couldn't be a nicer place to spend a family vacation. It is replete with every homey furnishing you could hope for and some you didn't realize you wanted: the kitchen is stocked with appliances, the game shelves are full, and there isn't a classical record missing from the collection. While there is an old-fashioned feel befitting a family cabin in the forest, the television is probably nicer than yours (it was nicer than ours, anyway!) and the wireless internet is fast. Everything is clean and works well. The location is great - close enough to walk to town and a fast drive to lots of hikes and the Nature Center. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

absolutely beautiful property. Ideally located and accommodates, just as the description reads.

the owner made sure all was just perfect for our weekend stay!

this should be your home away from home, while in Idyllwild.

we look forward to next time....I am not sure it could have been any better!

Beautiful home in the pines welcomes

  • 5 of 5

There was an immediate sense of "home warmth" in the home. Amenities was all in order and everything was neat and clean. The long table was wonderful for our meals; the deck was perfect for afternoon relaxation. Very nice music room, and much more. A short walk to "downtown" Idyllwild leads to several quite good restaurants and an array of shopping possibilities. A big coffee shop in town is always popular.

Couldn't think of a nicer place to stay for a week, and I look forward to staying there next year.

Our Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year for our family to gather in Idyllwild at David & Connie's place in the pines. There were 9 of us again (youngest is 16) with one small dog and it works out so well that there are enough bedrooms, baths and private spaces to make this rental ideal for a week. Nobody needs to sleep on a pull out couch. We cooked all of our meals there except for one lunch out, because that works for our family. There are good restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops that you can actually walk to if that is more your style. We again enjoyed several local hikes, The Nature Center, neighborhood walks, and shopping in town (there are 3 new knitters in the family thanks to the local yarn shop!) The house is located on a large lot, with a huge deck, in a very quiet neighborhood. The pictures of the interior are very accurate, it is older and cozy, made more so by the wood burning fireplace that we ended up using a lot this trip. Since we had been here before we knew how everything worked and didn't need to contact the owners, but David checked in with us to make sure everything was okay. Most of us moved here from Colorado and it reminds us of being back there. Wonderful getaway - I recommend it!

Great, large, clean private property

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at this property! Let me start out by saying that we had to cancel our first reservation last minute and David accommodated by booking dates a few weeks later without any penalties. David was very open to helping with the situation that was out of our control. The house sits on a large property set back from the street. It feels very private. It's a great house with multiple rooms to enjoy. Two fireplaces and a game room with a pool table make the house a lot of fun. Being that several of us on this trip are musicians it helped that there is a music room complete with a piano and organ! Another nice aspect about the location is that the village is only a 7 minute walk or so. Very nice to not have to drive. Just take a nice stroll through the mountain neighborhood. Everything about the house was perfect. Plenty of cooking supplies in the kitchen, enough bedrooms and bathrooms for the 8 of us to feel comfortable and a great porch to relax on. I highly recommend this property for a quiet getaway in Idyllwild!

40th Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property and it was awesome. We were staying with 4 adults and 5 kids and there was plenty of room. The property was well stocked with games and puzzles. There were sleds for the kids and we were lucky enough to get a little snow. We will definitley be back!!!
